My fitness plan (Since my 5k is THIS FRIDAY!)

Sunday, April 11, 2010

emoticonOkay, is it totally geeky for me to already be nervous for my 5K on Friday? PHYSICALLY I know that I'm prepared and will be able to fully run it, but mentally I'm feeling a little frazzled.

emoticonI have always been an emotional eater, so I'm focusing really hard on not letting the stress I'm feeling about this race *gulp* derail my nutrition and exercise this week. Just because I have a race on Friday does not mean I get to coast this week!

Here's the plan:

emoticon Use the nutrition tracker and stay within my daily guidelines (I do this every day, but this week is especially important!) On Thursday night and Friday morning I plan to "carb up" and eat toward the higher ends of my recommended carbs.

emoticonTonight (Sunday) I did a 2 mile run.

emoticonMonday Circuit training with Ms. Jillian

emoticonTuesday RUN. 3.1 miles.

emoticonWednesday Circuit training with Ms. Jillian

emoticonThursday REST. RELAX. Mentally prepare for the race.

emoticon emoticon emoticonFriday RUN THAT RACE! 6:30 PM start. It's chip-timed and all finishers get a medal. My husband is running it with me.

We'll be out of town for the run, so I won't be able to post pictures until I get home, but I'm hoping to hop on and give an update of how the race went!

I HAVE A PLAN, and that is 90% of the battle! emoticon

    I am so proud of you!!!!! You're going to great emoticon It's not geeky to be nervous. I used to run cross country when I was in high school. Coach used to have us run 8-10 miles a day for practice. We only had to run 3.2 miles for a meet. My first run, I threw up on the first hill I was so nervous.
